Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We called in at this hotel yesterday evening. With temperatures of -5 we thought we might be the only customers but the bar and restaurant were reasonably busy, particularly for a Monday night. We had an excellent meal, looked after by Steve, who was first...class. We will definitely return.More

Outdated restaurant with a poor menu. They have a menu in their web site but they offer you a different one in the restaurant. It used to be quite good 20 years ago but not any more. Spider webs, broken lamps on the walls and...the tables are not clean. Special mention: the wine glasses! They look like plastic! They need to buy a decent gassware. It is a pity, the place is very nice but it needs a make over urgently. The man who served us seemed to be on a hurry and he was very grumpy. Not a nice experience, i would not recommend this restaurant…More

Visited tonight with my wife . One of the best in the local area and we live here! The scallops and trout starter both perfect . The home made bread and beetroot butter and unexpected treat . The mains of lamb and pheasant all cooked...and tasted lovely . Disappointed we have not tried before so close to home . Very very impressed . Compared to some of the high end places I’ve visited (in my reviews) this is as good as now closed Mizen head in Bamburgh . Please give it a try . Wasn’t busy but I would book at a weekend . If you like boring food maybe not for you !More

We were so disappointed. Although being warned that the beef would take 45 minutes, we waited an hour and a half for our food (we did not order starters) and when it arrived it was over cooked and chewy. We requested rare and both came...beyond well done. We were offered a round of drinks on the house but the most disappointing part of the evening was the attitude of the manageress - yes we were offered a discount but she made a bad meal unsalvageable. Sorry but definitely would not recommend.More

Went for lunch - hadn't booked but got table in the bar. Looked after in an exemplary manner by Angela (only member of staff in bistro/bar area). Something on the menu to suit all tastes/appetites/budgets. We had prawn cocktail x 2 and Steak ciabatta and...mushroom omelette plus a bottle of excellent Pinot Grigio. All Covid-19 rules in force but felt safe and relaxed. After we left we popped into Cornhill Village Store (terrific little shop/cafe).More

We only visited for drinks as it was such a lovely day but how glad we were that we did. The outside gardens where we sat are really lovely and very relaxing. The staff were very friendly and the beer was pretty good too. Next...time we'll stop for a bite to eat!More

Having eaten here a couple of years ago and being impressed, I convinced my friends that we should stop off here for a light lunch after having a walk. I phoned a few days earlier to check if they did lunches/soups etc on a Sunday....They confirmed that they start serving this at 2:30pm after the Sunday lunches. We arrived at 2:15 and were told that they only served a fixed Sunday menu on a Sunday. When I explained that I had rang previous to check, the staff member said "Oh yes, but we don't start serving until 2:30 " as it was now 2:20pm we said we would wait . She showed us to a table in the restaurant where the were only 2 customers, hardly rushed off there feet. She said she would check if we could be served early. We each ordered soup and sandwich from the menu the sandwiches were priced at £7 - £7.50 but there was no price against the soup and sandwich separate deal. It took ages for the food to come. Soup was delicious but my Ham sandwich left a lot to be desired. For the price I expected to have nice baked Ham but I got the thin/sllmey cheap stuff you get from Supermarkets. The shocker came when the bill arrived 3 x Soup and sandwiches and 1 small bottle larger. £43. When we checked we had been charged £7 - £7.50 for the sandwiches+ £6 for the soup. I went to the bar to query the bill . arguing that if we ordered soup separately it would have come with a roll and the sandwiches would have come with crisps and coldslaw garnish. The lady behind the bar did look up a few things before she reluctantly gave us a revised bill of £28. £15 difference. We paid and left there wasn't any apology I think they felt like we were trying to rip them off. I think it was the other way on. I heard since that the Collingwood has recently changed hands, I won't be returning again.More
